The office bearers of the association have raised the question that when the Boys Hostel can be converted into Mountview Hotel and the appearance of Tagore Theater can be changed completely, then what is the problem with the administration in formulating the policy keeping in mind the needs of the general public?
It is noteworthy that the Resident Welfare Association of Sector-10, Chandigarh has filed a petition in the High Court against Floor Wise Percentage Sale. According to this the Apartment Act is not applicable in the city while the Property Consultants Association, Chandigarh says that the need of the hour is to implement the Apartment Act. According to them, percentage sale is very important in today’s date because any family member who has got his/her share in the percentage sale property, can sell it in percentage sale only. He/she can sell that much share and not more than the number of shares he/she owns. Association said that if a person has purchased the property in percentage from someone else, then he/she will also sell only the percentage. According to association if a 3-storey house of 10 Marla, in which 3 families live then how does it make the difference whether the tenants or owner is living in the house, and what difference does it make in public utilities/ facilities.
